Name Root:
dumno / dubno val > Domhnall
This name derives from the Scottish Gaelic personal name “Domhnall and Dòmhnall,” meaning “ruler of the world, king of the world.” The name is ultimately derived from the Old Celtic word elements “dubno” (world), a Celtic name of the God of the Dobuni, plus “val” (rule). The final -d on Donald is partly derived from a misinterpretation of the Gaelic pronunciation by English-speakers and somewhat associated with the spelling of similar-sounding Germanic language names.
